Academic Tutoring


My Approach

My Approach

“Enjoy. Engage. Enhance.” These underpin my tuition approach.

If a student enjoys their learning, they will engage in it; once they engage in it, they will enhance their results. 

Unlike pressurised, prescriptive and one-size-fits-all tuition, I champion insightful and inspiring learning that is entirely tailored to the individual student. This personalised approach is not restricted to current ability and learning goals; personality, interests and hobbies are equally as important when unlocking a child or teenager’s full academic potential.

 Drawing on my 1000+ hours’ experience in delivering private tuition, exceptional track record (click here for Parent Testimonials), strong academic background (read more here) and professional experience as an Admissions Director in a leading UK independent school, I take great pride in supporting students of all ages and abilities, guiding them to achieve their highest possible results in the most enjoyable way.



An academic champion of English, French and Latin, my expertise lies in languages


English Language

Whether responding to a comprehension or writing an essay, an ability to articulate oneself in written form is vital for all English levels. Vibrant vocabulary and clear structure are key: I empower your child to improve both.


English Literature

From Shakespeare’s plays to war poetry, I clarify the literary techniques used, messages conveyed and characters presented to enable your child to understand and write confidently about any text they are presented with.



I support all ages with reading, writing, listening and speaking French. Having also lived and worked in France, I specialise in boosting pronunciation, clarifying verb tenses and fine-tuning reading skills.



Be it step-by-step translation tips, set text analysis or fresh ways of remembering vocabulary, I unlock this ancient language with unceasing passion and expertise. I’m renowned for motivating even the most reluctant of Classicists!

My daughter’s confidence and ability definitely increased as a result of her lessons.

Parent, A Level Girl

Parent, 11+ Boy


A wonderful tutor for my daughter. Calmed her down, sorted out her revision and helped her enormously.

Parent, GCSE Girl

A truly inspirational tutor for my son, who was reluctantly doing GCSE Latin. Annabel was flexible in her approach and when one method of engaging him didn’t work she tried another tack which did.

Parent, GCSE Boy

Annabel is a joy. Very professional, reliable and accommodating to my 13 year old son. She teaches the child, rather than just the subject, and takes the time to really get to know the child’s individual way of learning.

Parent, 13+ Boy

Warm, friendly, extremely organised and ready to teach at a high standard from the very first lesson. My daughter was soon feeling much more confident.

Parent, GCSE Girl

My daughter is finding sessions with Annabel extremely helpful and enjoyable.

Parent, GCSE Girl

Annabel is passionate about her subject and knows well how to engage the student so he can do better.
